West Leeds commuters reacted with anger after a broken down train caused severe delays for waiting passengers at New Pudsey and Bramley Stations.
Some commuters complained trains were running hour minutes late, causing people to be late for work and cramped conditions on the platforms at Bramley.
Frustrated Stephen Foxcroft Tweeted:
“I’m sat on a Northern Rail train stuck near New Pudsey due to a broken train in front of us. I’ve missed my connecting train in Leeds and the now the next train. My train was cancelled yesterday due to a fault. This joke isn’t funny anymore.”
Sam Wilkinson added:
“@northernassist shoutout to making me late for work again. Every train from Leeds to Pudsey has been cancelled between 7:45 and 8:40. Cost me £15 in an Uber to work. Thank you!”
Clare Chapman added:
Northern confirmed that some lines were blocked due to a broken down train at Bramley this morning. The line was cleared by 10am.
Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves has previously raised issues with overcrowding and unreliable services at Bramley Station.
